SPAIN IS SAVED. Secretary Olney Comes to the Rescue. He Takes Filibusterers by the Collar. Proposes to Let the Cubans Have It Out Themelves. Cleveland Issues a Proclamation Warning His Misguided Sub jects to Keep Out of It. By the Associated Press. Washington, June 12. Secretary Olney is thoroughly determined that the United States government shall do all in its power and all the interna, tional law requires to prevent the viO' lation of the United States treaty by persons who undertake to make this country a base of hostile operations against Spain, with which power it is at peace. Complaints have reached the depart ment of state through the Spanish minister that men are beinj recruited on American soil and that armed expe ditions are leaving our shores for the purpose of attacking the Spanish forces in Cuba. Whenever necessary evidence can be produced, these infractions of the law are to be severely punished, for the secretary of state will have no just ground for complaint that the United States has failed in its obligations to other nations. Meanwhile, even, it has been deemed proper to give a formal warning to mis guided people of what they may expect. So this afternoon the president issued a proclamation warning all citizens against the violation of neutrality laws in the case of Cuba and instructing United States officers to rigorously en force the laws and punish violators thereof.

CRUCIFIED. Peraltareavis Still on the Land Court Rack. He Confesses to a Matri monial Incident. The Boundaries of the "Float ing Grant" Are Confused. The Torture ot the Claimant at the Hands of the Government Will Be Continued Today. Special to The Republican. Santa Fe, N. M., June 12, The great land grant case is still in progress. Attorney Reynolds had Reavis on the rack again and the torture was almost pitiable. His examination covered al most the whole range of the notorious claim and incidents of tfce claimant's life. He confessed that he took out a license to marry a Ppmona, Cal., girl, after his marriage to his wife by con tract but he told the court that it was an attempt to bluft the girl. He utterly broke down under ques tions concerning his "floating claim" so described by Attorney Reynolds, be cause the claimant had remodeled its boundaries by their removal eight miles south of the boundaries de scribed in the original claim. An incident of his testimony was a renewal of his incoherent attack upon ex-Surveyor General Johnson, made yesterday. Reavis' examination at the hands of the government's attorney amounted to almost a crucifixion tt even the most active opponents of the "Royal Grant" expressed a sense of relief when court adjourned. The claimant will take his place on the stand again tomorrow. A SERIES OF SOCIALS. Entertainments Out of Which Good May Come. The vounz people's societies con nected with the various churches of the city are preparing for several evening entertainments and socials during the summer. They will form a union for the purpose and will no doubt meet with great success. The object in view is to help the i . M. V. A. ot the city to furnish the new quarters they expect to occupy in the fall. The latter organiza tion intends to secure nioreisuitaDie quarters than their present location af- tords ana to morougniy equip luom ior their work, including a hrst-class gym nasium, Dowling aney, Dams, reading rooms, parlors, etc., ana the young peo ple's societies, realizing the need of such work among the young men as the Y. M. C. A. is trying to do, have de cided to help them in furnishing their new quarters. They will hold these so cials once a month during the summer, and being union affairs to which every body will be invited, it is expected that quite a sum will be realized for this most laudable purpose. In addition to this, it will be a means of drawing all the young people together, a thing greatly needed in this city. If the churches would get together more they would not find their work so hard. These socials will also furnish strangers in the city a pleasant way of spending the summer evenings, which will be another point greatly in their favor. ANDY FORGOT. A Trial at Which None of the Wit- nesses Appeared. Andv Walker was a delinquent wit nesB in the caBe of Sam Glass. Andy was not the only delinquent, for it is an unparalleled fact that of the several witnesses subpoenaed to appear against Mr. Glass, none came and neither hide nor hair was seen of any of them afterward until yesterday, when Dep uty Sheriff Gibson ran afoul of Andy and escorted him into court, where he sat sweaty, trembling and as pale as he could grow. Andy couldn't get very pale, for the ace of spades is a cheerful color in juxtaposition with Andy's skin. "Why didn't you come to the trial, Andy?" asked Judge Baker when he got around to him. "Well, foh God, judge, Use been so bizzv: I wo'ks in de bank in de maw- nin and cooks fo' Mr's Budge de rest of ds day; dis ossefir heah (pointing to Mr. Gibson 1 tole me 'bout dat trial but I done clean fergot de day when it was to come off." "But, Andy," suggested the judge, "A man who works in a bank can't af ford to foroTBt about davs. There is no other calling which requires so close watch of days. Notes and acceptances became due, you know, on certain days and banks lose if the employes forget." Andy began to grin and the judge continued: "I ought to send you to jail and if I don't do it, it will not be on ac count of my warm regard for you, but because the times are hard and the county can't afford to buy feed foryou." Andy grinned broader and the judee proceeded "Andy if you ever fail to come to court again when you're sum moned I'll send you to jail, if it breaks the county ; I'll let yon go this time." Andy's grin had now grown so broad that he had to turn it edgewise to get out of the court room door. SEVENTY -ONE. The Birthday of W. NI.- Dameron, Esq. Yesterdav was the seventy-first birth day of W. M. Dameron, Esq., and in honor of the event Dr. and Mrs. L. D. Dameron gave a dinner to a few friends at their handsome home in Orchard Grove addition.

Holbrook Becomes the Center of Government. Holbrook is the county seat of the new county of Navajo. The county seat election and the contest between Holbrook and Winslow occurred on Tuesday and resulted in a victory for the former by something more than 100 votes, an unexpected and over whelming majority considering the sparse population of the new county. The population of Winslow is considera bly greater than that of Holbrook but the latter was supported by the interior towns and communities. Beside the prize the contestants were inspired by bad blood growing out of a former county seat election of Apache county between Holbrook and the present seat St. Johns, in which St. Johns re. ceived a majority of only eighteen votes and owed its election to the influence of Winslow. Both Winslow and Holbrook are rail road towns. Holbrook is said to be the most im portant shipping point on the A. & P. in Arizona and does an extensive busi ness with the interior towns and camps Pending the election it has been the temporary county seat under the act creating Navajo county. HIS FATE SEALED. The Removal of Hughes Now a Certainty. Zullckand Kellner at Work In Wash ingtonA Dark Horse the Likely New Governor. The momentous question as to who will be governor is the absorbing topic at present, but so far no authentic ad vices have been received. It ia under stood that the report of Judge Olive and Col. Duncan recommended the re moval of Governor Hughes in the strongest language and for a variety of reasons. In fact from the evidence gathered by these gentlemen that would be the only course for them to pursue. They came to the territory for the sole purpose of going to the bottom of the numerous charges and to make a report that should be final for the action- of President Cleveland and Secretary Smith. That there will be a change is there fore generally conceded. In tact it is understood that Governor Hughes him self has given up the contest and ie preparing to go out. He has been busy for several days closing up his annual report, which ordinarily would not be forwarded for several month3, and other unfinished business in anticipa tion ot a request lor his resignation which will likely come in a few davs. The report of the inspectors has reached Washington within the last day or two and no action can have been taken yet. Secretary Smith has been south and the president is at Gray Gables. It is likely that the secretary will now take the matter up, however, and an appointment may be looked tor by the end of the fiscal year, June 30. Zulick and Kellner are in Washington and are active candidates, but no reli able news has been received as to the chances of either. In fact, it is known that the claims of neither have been formally considered and that neither has b?en shown any especial courtesy that would indicate favoritism. Reliable telegraphic advices have been received that endorsements are pouring in for other gentlemen, one ol them at least a Democrat of wide ac quaintance in Washington and recog nized in Arizona as a man of the purest Democracy and of great ability. There is no objection to any of the men prominently mentioned, but it is dollars to. doughnuts that the dark horse will receive the commission. But in any event the fate of Hughes ia sealed and there will be a new governor by J uly. IN THE COURTS. Real Estate Commission Went Glimmering In the Case of Czar- nowski vs. Holland. Bob Grigsby's Chickens Are at Last Terribly Avenged. The Unsustained Verdict of a Jury In a Justice's Court a Year Ago. Things went with a whirl in district court yesterday and four jury cases were concluded in less than so many hours. One of considerable interest was the suit of Czarnowski vs. Holland, to re cover $250, a commission on a real estate deal which was never quite con summated. Nearly two years ago the defendant listed with the plaintiff three lots on East Adams Btreet for Bale. The price put upon the property was $5,000. Within a short time the defendant found a purchaser, W. T. Smith. The preliminary papers were executed and the purchaser paid $1,000, the rest to be paid upon terms agreed upon. In the meantime the defendant was filled with regret and desired to evade the responsibility he had assumed. His mother came in and claimed the property and denied the authority of her son to enter into any negotiation for the transfer of the property. A suit was begun to enforce the contract but was defeated or abandoned, the defendant acknowledging that he had listed the property for sale but claimed that the price understood or meant ty him was $5,000 for each lot instead if 85,000 for the three. Suit was then begun by Czarnowski to collect his commission. The case was tried before Justice Johnstone, judgment was rendered for the defend ant and an appeal was taken. At the trial yesterday the court de cided to strike out the contract that had existed between the ; parties on the ground that there was a misapprehen sion on the part of the defendant. The plamtia wan perroittea though to show the actual value of his services in nego tiating the transaction. He declined to do so, but would rely, his attorney said, on the fact that the contract had been stricken out, thereby intimating that an appeal would be taken. The court then instructed the jury to find a verdict for the defendant. "Little Henry," or "Honest Henry," the diminutive colored person who got confounded with Bob Grigsby's Buff Cochin chickens about a year ago, was convicted in three minutes by the court house clock. This was a notable casein the criminal annals of Arizona. It was first tried before a jury in a justice's court, and though henry had pre viously admitted his guilt and though all circumstances pointed unswerv ingly to it, the jury disagreed. One of the jnrvmen afterward admitted the full double strength of the territory's case. "But," said this juryman, "Little Henry denied the whole business and there we were, so what could we do?" At an other trial he was convicted and an ap peal was taken. He waa released on bail, but oscillated between his country residence and jail ior a variety of offen ses. His last was a larceny committed on a cow. Henry is a Democrat from way back, of the Jacksonian stripe to whom as a victor belong the spoils. During his residence in jail for lactomania the late city election occurred and a local Demo cratic authority on election laws argued and proved that Henry though his home was outside the city limits, had acquired a legal residence by reason of his frequent inhabitation of the county jail which is situated within the corporate limits. Henry was actually permitted to vote. He will be sent enced today and Bob Grigsby's chick ens will be avenged. PULLMAN SERVICE Over the S. F. P. & P. From Los An geles to Phoenix.
